Abhyanga Massage

picture

Abhyanga massage is a type of therapy used by Ayurvedic practitioners. Ayurveda is an ancient, traditional medicine native to India that dates back almost two thousand years. According to Ayurvedic principles, everyone has a specific body type, known as a dosha. There are three different doshas and a different balance of doshas exists in each individual. This requires a practitioner of Abhyanga massage to be highly adaptable; each treatment needs to be specific to the individual.
Abhyanga is a full body massage which uses warmed and aromatic herbal oils that leave the skin soft and glowing and the mind and body relaxed. The massage itself is smooth and gentle in order to work the oils deep into the body. Traditionally, the massage is performed in the morning to clear the mind and prepare the client for the day head although it’s accepted today that the massage is beneficial at any time of the day, given that it also promotes deep sleep at night.
Sarah is a fully trained Abhyanga masseuse. Her clients can receive the massage either lying on a massage table, sitting in a massage chair or alternatively lying on a floor mat. The massage itself targets muscles and tendons, joints and ligaments, as well as the lymphs and organs of the gastrointestinal system. She uses her fingers, hands and arms but can also bring in her knees and feet, should the situation call for it.
Because Sarah has studied the philosophy of balancing the body’s doshas in depth, she is able to apply both the correct balance of oils and use the appropriate pressures, depending on the client’s needs.

Testimonial

“ I had been suffering from S A D for a number of years when I first tried shiatsu. I was in a very depressed state at the time and I soon realized that Sarah's treatments not only effect the body but the mind too. After afew sessions my moods became more balanced and Sarah suggested several small life style and dietary changes which also helped alot . I now feel on top of my disorder and visit Sarah twice a month or when the going gets tough. I feel hugely supported and encouraged by her mindful approach. ”
